Diplomatic Life

Just around the corner there's a couple embassies, which you normally don't realize so much, as it's none of those heavily guarded among them.

(I wouldn't want to live round the corner from the US-embassy these days, it's pretty likely it's cordoned off during Dubya's visit this week.)

The North Korean embassy here is never visibly guarded (altough I suspect a Korean Gestapo-officer behind each window) and they even sport a showcase, where the passerby can marvel at their great leader meeting his underlings in various settings (industrial, military, farming ...).
